    Might be going to a cricket match next month so hoping to get some action shots. Just a bit concerned as the players are all in white so am i oing to end up with all the people as blown highlights? and the rest dull?

    I would set EC to -.3 or -.7. As shoot in raw so you can adjust WB

    Should work fine on default. While the players are white you don't have them filling the shot to a worrying degree.

    Of bigger concern is a long lens, fortunatly your list of equipment includes a 70-300 so make sure to pack that and expect to be running at the 300 end a lot of the time. I don't have any of my images from cricket matches on flickr at the moment.

    Exposure compensation, so the players aren't over exposed. If it is indoors, you will have a very difficult time capturing action.

    *chuckles* guess you havn't met this 'wierd' english sport of Cricket. The challenges he faces are comparable to those you'd face photographing baseball.

    I've played baseball indoors ;D. But yea to the OP try shooting with the long lens and shoot in RAW so it's easier to fix the exposure.
